Walker's Fundraiser:

Lives In Bloom

Walker's Photo

BENEFITING: Walker

EVENT DATE: May 07, 2016

THE STORY:

Walker will honor Benjamin W. Thorndike, Chair of the Walker Board of Directors for nearly a decade, with the 2016 Distinguished Community Leadership Award. A tireless advocate for the youth Walker cares for, Thorndike and his family have been devoted supporters for nearly 30 years. To recognize the accomplishment and in honor of his commitment to Walker, the Board of Directors will be naming the Walker School gymnasium: The Thorndike Family Gym.

Please join us in recognizing Ben with a tribute gift and we hope you will join us at the Lives in Bloom Gala on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel. To purchase tickets, visit: livesinbloom.org.
